But by all means, tell me another time Lombardi dealt for a guy that was rumored to be coming to L.A. for some time.
Sorry, no they didn't. Everyone knew the cost of Hemsky was Schenn, and DL wasn't going to pay that. Penner was the long rumoured choice.

And no, I'm not going to go dig around for who was/wasn't rumoured to be coming here and did/didn't. You made your post, I showed you an example otherwise. Done.

Besides, much of DL's campaign has been rebuilding, not gearing up for a cup run, so we haven't had many big trades at all period. Smyth, Richards, Penner and Jack Johnson are about the only big ones off the top of my head. Cloutier as well if you call that a big deal, but if you do that one was also rumoured since it was widely known Cloutier was on his way out after Luongo came to Vancouver and we had just hired his BFF Marc Crawford as coach.
